Holland Family Bike Tours – Biking Through Holland

From the 19 windmills of Kinderdijk to the city of Gouda, our Holland family bike tours guarantee all members of your family to have a great time. Cycling is often viewed as sport rather than as a mean of transportation. In Holland however, biking is seen as a mode of daily commuting transport. Amsterdam, canals and the world largest flower garden set the perfect stage for a family adventure of a lifetime. Your cycling tour takes you through endless acres of tulips and passing beautiful fishing villages. Each day brings a new experience while cyclists feel completely safe. Whether you’re cycling through the flat landscape of Zeeland or biking around the town of Gouda, a DIGnGO bike trip offers cyclists of all ages a route that matches their ability level.
